Our favorite two weeks of the year

  • 5 of 5
This past September was our second two week rental of Sweetfern Meadow. It doesn’t take long to feel at home in this beautiful house. The house is sited on 5 acres of pine trees offering complete privacy and has all the amenities of home with an abundance of space. We particularly enjoyed eating lunches outdoors (excellent gas grill) as well ending our day around the fire pit in the evening. The property is ideally located on the Island. A five minute drive to the best Lobster Pound (Trenton), 15 minutes to the heart of Bar Harbor, 10 minutes to Eagle Lake and the Carriage Roads in Acadia Park. I’m making my reservation for 2014 now!

Quiet Wooded Home

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this home. It was not a new home, but was in pretty good shape. I enjoyed the fact that a canoe was provided, and especially the fact that everything you needed to transport it (straps, cushions, etc) was provided as well. We took it out one morning, and had a nice time. The heated floors were pretty neat. It was not cold enough for us to need heating, but I could see where they would be very nice when you did. The location was nice and secluded in the forest. My children enjoyed playing in the yard and woods, and on the small tree fort. A cat came over from somewhere and was very friendly. My kids enjoyed playing with it in the yard everytime they went out.

Will have to be honest in my and include that the water pressure was not the best. It was fine if you only had one thing running, but if you were trying to take a shower and anything else was on, even a sink or toilet filling, the water pressure dropped very low.

Acadia NP was awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits there each day. It was very nice being on the island and not having to fight traffic coming in or out of the one road. We noticed that traffic was backed up quite a bit on the bottleneck coming onto the island when we did have to use that road.

Over all it was a great experience. Thank you.

Owner's Response: As a follow up to this review: The low water pressure has been resolved. We are grateful for input from our guests and count on it to better the property. In this particular case we were not contacted about the water pressure. We ask that guests please notify us of any concerns during their visit so that we may resolve them timely and improve their stay. A property caretaker is available to help at anytime.

Thank you.

Idéal pour séjourner et découvrir Mount Desert Island

  • 5 of 5
Merveilleux séjour en famille dans cette belle et très confortable maison. Emplacement parfait pour visiter ce fabuleux Parc National d'Acadia et se reposer au calme dans un environnement naturel extraordinaire. Très agréable jardin, maison bénéficiant d'un très bon niveau de confort, et propriétaire disponible et accueillant qui confie sa maison aux locataires comme à des amis. La cuisine est notamment équipée pour cuisiner les fameux "lobsters" spécialité de la région, délicieux....Nous recommandons d'ailleurs non loin de la maison une excellente adresse : "RATS" Rte 102, à ne pas manquer !
Nous sommes ravis d'avoir séjourné dans ce charmant cottage et remercions à nouveau le propriétaire pour son accueil de qualité.

Relaxing week in Maine

  • 5 of 5
Fern Meadow is a great get- a- way from all the traffic in Bar Harbor! The home is lovely and well maintained. The house is only about 9 miles from Acadia but much closer to a Echo Lake. We were surprised with the size of the Park and the amount of driving that we did in order to reach various trails. Cadillac Mountain though is a must see.
The Drydock Restaurant in Southwest is very good with family friendly staff. We also found free music in the park across the street one day and great ice cream in the shop next door.

Beautiful & Clean Cottage in Peaceful Setting - - Highly Recommended

Beautiful & Clean Cottage in Peaceful Setting - - Highly Recommended
  • 5 of 5
This beautiful & clean cottage was the perfect base camp for our family of four while exploring Mt. Desert Island. The home was well stocked with towels, linens, paper products, dish soap, coffee filters, etc. The drive to Bar Harbor(15-20 min) and Acadia National Park(10-15 min) was not a problem as we liked coming "home" to such a quiet & peaceful location. Relaxing by the fire pit in the evening was a great way to end each day. The stars in the night sky were brighter than I've ever seen! We appreciated having a grill to cook dinner some of the evenings and other nights we tried some of the owner's dining suggestions. Rupununi & Mainely Meat at Atlantic Brewing did not disappoint! The owner was very easy to work with and answered all my questions in a timely manner. We loved all of the recommendations for activities. I just wish we had time to try all of them. We hope to return!

Perfect Summer Cottage and Base for Hiking in Acadia

  • 5 of 5
We stayed this summer for a week, and were really happy with this nice cottage. It has a very peaceful and lightly atmosphere, the garden is spacious and nicely landscaped, the rooms are very clean, and the owner and housekeeping staff we dealt with are very friendly. This is a perfect place to stay in Acadia, a good base for hiking but equally good if you are looking for a nice and quiet getaway and do not want to move around much. The listing description of this rental is a 100% accurate, and the pictures accurately reflect the cottage|s appearance. We highly recommend this place.
